Destiny E3 2013 Preview

“If there’s one thing that Destiny showed me at E3 2013, it’s promise. Promise that the company is looking to take first-person shooter gameplay in a whole new direction and bring some much-needed innovation to the genre. The little taste that I got during Bungie’s hands-off demonstration didn’t do enough for me to immediately buy what they’re selling, but the game does have my curiosity and attention at this point.”

Disney Infinity E3 2013 Hands-On Preview

Disney Infinity is a bold undertaking. Working off of Activision’s popular Skylanders mold, Disney is integrating figurines of several characters from across the company’s properties into gameplay by allowing players to scan them into the Infinity‘s numerous worlds. While each of these worlds — known in the game as Play Sets — will feature its own setting, story, and play mechanics, it’s the creative Toy Box mode that was the game’s biggest of challenges.”
